poor Kite... is it possible to hunt with only one eye for the bird of prey ?

I'm new to the forums, but had been lurking and reading for awhile. I wanted to thank everyone for posting about Addo. We're flying into PE and originally planned on spending a night there before continuing on to a game reserve. But after finding a link to SanParks on another forum, we're now going to spend time in Addo first!

So thank you for all the pictures and descriptions (the recent muddy lion pics are great!) We can't wait to experience it for ourselves!

jetlagged 79. Welcome to the forum and especially to Addo, You have made a wise move by planning to spend time in Addo and you will not be diappointed. A great place and we are very blessed to have such a wonderfully run National Park in the Eastern Cape. Enjoy your stay in Addo.

Thank you Delene D. We leave next week for our trip and I can't wait! We reserved a spot on the night game drive, which we haven't done anywhere before. Hope to share our experiences when we return!

Lion Queen and JJ, what amazing sightings and beautiful pictures.

I do feel sorry for the Kite :( Who could have thought that a claw could be so gentle?

Jetlagged I hope that you have a most enjoyable stay.

Ronnie, I hope that you had a really lovely day in your birthday. :thumbs_up:

I also love the grooming pics, but I also enjoy your little vervet. Exquisitively captured.
